Amphenol PCD USB 3.0 Connection System provides the ideal solution for data transfer in harsh or demanding environments. The USB 3.0 field bus has the same form & fit as the standard USB 2.0 but will reach 10x the speeds transmitting data at up to 5 Gbits/second. The Connection System is sealed against fluids and dusts (IP68), offers shock, vibration and traction resistance and features improved EMI protection. The metallic plug is connected into a receptacle, using a Tri Start Thread coupling mechanism (MIL-DTL-38999 series III type) with anti-decoupling device for high vibrations. The USB 3.0 Connection System allows users to quickly and reliably transform standard telecommunications and data communication mediums into rugged, military & industrial connectors for harsh environments.
Amphenol PCD offers high reliability Cat 5e, Cat 6, and Cat 6a cable cable assemblies designed for fixed or portable applications in harsh environments. The cable contains 4 twisted pairs, cabled, double shielded with Kevlar™ reinforcement strands, jacketed in black UV resistant Polyurethane HFFR. Amphenol PCD cables are designed to ISO/IEC11801 requirements.
Amphenol PCD Terrapin Micro-USB Connectors offer Micro-USB technology in a rugged, IP68 sealed connector to increase durability and reliability for USB data transmission in harsh environment applications. Terrapin provides a backshell strain relive with screen termination, 2000 mating cycles, 5 keying options, and a miniature footprint <16mm Ø. The shell design also ensures blindmating of the receptacle to the plug and IP68 sealing in both mated and un-mated conditions to eliminate ingress of moisture and dust through the interface. These Micro-USB Connectors deliver highly reliable performance in severe conditions with an environmental temperature range of -55°C to +85°C, IP68 sealing 1hr @ 2m immersion, 1000hrs salt spray, vibration 10g sine, 30hrs, 5Khz. Compliant with High Speed USB 2.0 specification and intermateable with standard COTS Mirco-USB plug connectors, Terrapin Micro-USB Connectors are suitable for both military and industrial applications.
Amphenol PCD APeX Galley Connector is a reliable, robust connector that uses overmold technology to set it apart from the rest. APeX Galley Connectors are intermateable and interchangeable with other ARINC 810 galley connectors and features a guide pin for quick and simple blind mating.
Amphenol Pcd µCom-10Gb+ Series is designed to meet the need for miniaturized connectors with rapid
transmission speeds and high resistance to environmental extremes.
Environmentally tested to MIL-DTL-38999 Series III military
specifications, these miniature connectors with a 15mm (.59˝) max.
external diameter can exceed 10Gb/s per IEEE 802.3an-2006 even in the
harshest environments. The rugged IP68 design features four completely
insulated twisted wire pairs throughout the connector to minimize
cross-talk and special patent-pending interfacial shapes to minimize
perturbation. A threaded coupling mechanism provides high vibration
resistance. The design provides IP68 sealing for mated and unmated
500 hours of salt spray resistance, 24AWG (max.) per
solder contact and 24AWG to 26AWG per crimp contact, and a 1500Vrms
dielectric withstanding voltage in a temperature range of -55°C to
Amphenol PCD Terrapin Miniature Circular Push-Pull Connectors are
designed for communications in harsh environments. Featuring a rugged
shell design, Terrapin Miniature Push-Pull Circular Connectors deliver
superior EMC performance and high environmental sealing to IP68
in both mated and unmated conditions. Resilient even in severe
conditions, the RoHS compliant black-silver plating is both low-luster
and corrosion resistant. Amphenol PCD Terrapin Miniature Push-Pull
Circular Connectors are Gigabit ethernet and USB 2.0
compatible, making these connectors well-suited for ruggedized routers,
military LAN switches, harsh environment data collection, robotics,
battlefield communications, and mass transit communications.
Amphenol PCD offers the miniature Terrapin connectors
with design options such as an optional locking mechanism, multiple
shell sizes with up to 37 contacts, and standard or tailored overmould
Amphenol PCD introduces Luminus, a line of compact, configurable lighting connectors with an easy, secure coupling mechanism and tough polyamide housing. Based on Amphenol PCD's exceptional military-grade connectors, Luminus lighting connectors combine industry-leading reliability, ease-of-use, light weight and environmental standards into a package that meets today's most demanding lighting requirements. These connectors offer a small footprint and aircraft-grade cable-mount accessories that allow for fast, efficient assembly, while standard AS39029, formerly MIL-C-39029, contacts ensure reliable performance. Designed to withstand high vibration and harsh environments, these lighting connectors are ideally suited for interior and exterior lighting in commercial aircraft, railway, and military applications.
Amphenol PCD USB-A Field Plastic & Neoprene Connectors consist of rugged USB interconnect devices for demanding industrial environments. The self-closing cap protects the USB-A Field receptacle from dust and fluids when the plug or USB memory key are unmated. Mated connectors with the plug or USB memory key have an IP67 sealing level. Designed to provide reliable performance in any harsh industrial environment, the Amphenol PCD USB-A Field Plastic & Neoprene Connectors feature neoprene shells for plug and USB keys, push / pull mating, up to 500 mating cycles, and data transmission rate up to 480 Mb/s for high-speed USB under USB Specification 2.0. The RoHS compliant USB-A Field Plastic & Neoprene Connectors
are well-suited for applications such as telecom equipment, video
control, robotics, industrial process control, CNC machines, and special
Amphenol PCD Backshell Clamps not only tidy-up the cable after
termination, but provide good strain relief at the termination area. It
is a cost-effective cable holding option when environmental protection
is not a concern and weight savings is a major consideration. Amphenol
PCD Backshell Clamps are available in olive drab gray cadmium, tin, or
nickel with a variety of shell sizes 11 through 48. Available in
environmental and non-environmental options, as well as EMI / RFI.
Backshell Clamps meet MIL-DTL-38999, MIL-DTL-26482 Series II,
MIL-DTL-83723 Series I and II.
Amphenol PCD ATEX Rugged Ethernet Connection System is the first
Ethernet connectors for applications in zone 2 and Class I Division 2
explosive environments. These rugged connectors were developed in
response to the current trend in the ATEX market toward limiting the
expensive equipment in zone 1 and installing it in zone 2, where
constraints are much less demanding. The Amphenol PCD ATEX Rugged
Ethernet Connection System is an extension of the RJ FIELD and USB FIELD
ranges, incorporating their patented and recognized RJStop® connection
system. The RJStop provides a rapid conversion of any standard Ethernet
cable into a connection with IP68 ingress protection against shocks,
dust, and fluids. The metal cases meet the mechanical resistance
criteria of EN 60079-15.
